For a limited time only, Candytopia is making the dreams of Texas candy fanatics come true. Those who loved the song “It’s a Marshmallow World” and watched “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory” over and over again will appreciate the fact this little venture has found a short-term home in Dallas. If you hurry, you can get there before it picks up shop and moves on to other national engagements across the country.

As far as pop-up art installations go, Candytopia is by far the yummiest. The fun begins when you wait in line, listening to cheery music and watching bright and colorful light displays. Then you cross the threshold into an amazing candy paradise! From a pool filled with 300K marshmallows (and, yes, you can float around in them, as it were) to large candy canes and lollipops, this piece of art is truly a saccharine masterpiece.

Vibrant and whimsical, the displays in Candytopia are set up to satiate your sweet tooth. And they’re quite elaborate! Animals of varying shapes and sizes, an entire scene set underwater, and so many real candy confections you can try for yourself make this exhibit one that’s sure to tempt even the staunchest of art critics into a sweet review.

Those wishing to see great works of art can also enjoy a recreation of the Mona Lisa—a sugar-coated take on the original work, obviously. The piece doesn’t disappoint, and for once, you won’t wonder where she gets her smile. She’s covered in candy, for Pete’s sake! Those hoping to get to Candytopia before it closes its door in Dallas can purchase their tickets at the link available here. Available dates are provided on the exhibit’s web link, and its doors will effectively close on July 31, 2019. Don’t delay! Don’t miss this sweetness!
